Masterchef Australia – Adam Falls On His Sword
Lucky for Ellie, Mrs Calombaris was on the set for this pressure test, so George was much more hands off.
Last year we had Gary Mehigan’s mother on the show, this year George’s, next year will it be Matt Preston’s? Everyone thought it was very lovely that she was there, I would have loved it someone had turned around and said to her “Get your fucking hands out of my pastry”. But no there was just lots of applause and smiles.
Tonight Adam, Michael, Danielle and Ellie were going head to head cooking George’s Mum’s food Greek Cypriot food. They had to cook tzatiki without a recipe and bread, koupes (greek pies), hommous and a dessert which was a deep fried pastry number.
You knew Michael was safe as you barely saw him the whole episode.
Ellie and he both served up fairly good food. The disaster was Danielle her tzatiki was too garlicky, her koupes too oily and her dessert pastry raw.
However Adam did a Mal Meninga and when asked if he wanted to be on the show basically said no. Just like the infamous radio interview at the start of Mal’s political career where he basically quit after being pre-selected for two minutes.
At least Adam was honest, and didn’t Danielle dodge a bullet as they said she would have been the one to go home. Now I know I am being lazy here but I had thought Danielle was Greek, and if so why didn’t she know how to make some of those dishes.
Also in the preview for tomorrow night Hayden goes up against a pastry chef, but it is a savoury dish. The inconsistency on these immunity challenges is unfair. Last week Kate went head to head against a pastry chef with one of his signature dishes. I think it should be all chefs cooking dishes that are not their own.
UPDATE: FairyBreadGirl just put this link from the Courier Mail up where Adam says Masterchef broke up his relationship, as he was only allowed 10 minute phone call a week. He also thought Mat was targeted because he had tatts and wore black.
